Congress sends child nutrition bill to Obama

The House has passed a $4.5 billion bill to feed more lunches and dinners to children at school, sending the legislation to President Barack Obama.

The bill would increase eligibility for needy children to eat free lunches and expand a program that provides full meals after school to all 50 states.

It would also try to cut down on greasy foods and extra calories by giving the government power to decide what kinds of foods may be sold in schools, part of first lady Michelle Obama's campaign to end childhood hunger and combat childhood obesity.

The Senate passed the legislation in August.
